Blake Allen – Seeking Grazing Land in NC Piedmont.
I think any landowner in NC would be lucky to have Blake grazing his cattle on their land. This young man is wholeheartedly committed to his cattle, their health, and the health of the land. Land in Cabarrus and Davidson counties would be ideal but he is willing to reach out further. Here is a note from Blake:
“I am interested in growing quality pasture forages, and using beef cattle to harvest these forages. In my current operation, I am focused on growing quality pasture and using excellent grazing management in order to achieve profitability from the land I operate on. I am looking for anywhere from 20 to 500 acres to lease for cattle grazing, in order to expand my herd and increase my net farm income. I would like the opportunity to improve your land through the use of good grazing management.
I have many years of personal experience tending to my own beef cattle and managing pastures. I have been working around cattle regularly since I was 10 years old, and I have owned my own herd of cattle since age 15. I hold a B.S. in Agricultural Business Management from NC State. In the last three to four years, I have intensively studied forages and grazing management, and have successfully implemented my research findings in my own operation. I am firmly committed to using livestock grazing to rejuvenate soils and create healthy ecosystems. I am seeking pasture or open, idle land available for lease in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. I have existing farm operations in Cabarrus and Davidson counties, so these counties and those surrounding them would be my first preference, however I am open to any opportunities available. ”
